Payment Options

You may finalize your bill in one or more of the following ways:

a. By paying tuition and fees in full with financial aid (if your financial aid grants and loans appear on your account as pending aid or anticipated aid, no further action with the Bursar is required; your bill is automatically considered finalized).

b. Pay tuition and fees online with credit card or electronic check transfer.

c.  Enroll in a payment plan (Fall and Spring terms only).  Establish your payment plan based upon your tuition and fee costs and your anticipated financial aid. To enroll, log into CUNYfirst Self-Service and go to your Student Center.  Go to Finances and select Enroll/Manage Payment Plan.

d. By a Third Party Voucher from your employer;
